about

O' Chancey Edmond, Oklahoma

We are a band of brothers. Literally. We are brothers and we play music together.
O’ Chancey was born from the culmination of literal garage bands and these slightly more eloquent experiences with friends, poets, and other musicians. We are a progressive rock band from Oklahoma City. With a love for the intense and intricate we are seeking to stretch what we can create, perform and listen. ... more

Track Name: Anchor
Lyrics:

In a place where there is no time to waste your mind
In a place where the clouds roll back and you can see all you were meant to

A mind constricted victim can only see as far as the eye sees
And in time their mind will die and cease
But in a place where there is no time to waste your mind
And in a place where the clouds roll back and you can see all you were meant to

With all that we have, when it comes to this: The wind and the waves crashing down
Forcing cringing, terror, and sound that makes men shake from their heads to their souls
A humbling waking sight resounds: a world with knees is found in silence

Well here we are… we’re gonna sing, we’re gonna sing together
Here we are… we’re gonna sing, we’re gonna sing together

When lovers come together and love each other
When killers tear apart and cut their brothers
When mothers cry for a child through the night we’re gonna sing
When fathers fall to their knees and pray for the world
When the prideful die to themselves and fight for the rest
When the shameful find their laugh and joy is bound
When children laugh and sing and run and play we’re gonna sing
When the world cries out for peace and something better we will sing

So here we are… we’re gonna sing, we’re gonna sing together
Here we are… we’re singing:

Here we are… we’re gonna sing, we’re gonna sing together
Track Name: Hope [Anchor]
Lyrics:

Hope floats

She wrote her song and sent it along with a kiss of love
When gravity came and took everything down her song floated on
Hope floated on with a kiss of love that could mend the broken
Hope floated on with a kiss of love that could mend the broken hearts

Hope floats

Hope floats on
Hope floats on… on over

Hope floats away and on over
Track Name: For Lords and Peasants
Lyrics:

The fall seems harder the higher up you are
Your bones feel colder the further down you are
The ground feels softer when feet don’t travel far
And home’s more friendly when the world’s not afar

When the lights go dim the people quiet down
For a time of resting or the fear in them
When the sun is going down up ahead
It’s coming up for someone over there
The stars do not come out… people come out for them
Though they don’t ask for our attention

When you come home our child we will sing you your song
And we will teach you the new with you dancing along
When you come home our child will you sing us your song
And teach us the new while we’re dancing along

Come home our child we will sing you your song
Then we’ll see you along as you run on and on
So go on our child and sing them your song
Go on and on and on
Track Name: The List
Lyrics:

All that’s left to do are the things that haven’t been done
All that’s left to see are the things we haven’t seen
All that’s left to touch are the things we have not touched
All that’s left to talk about are the things we have not said

All that’s left of me are the things I have not shared
And that’s a lot of me… I’m guessing a lot of you too
If we could come together and create a scene
It would look something like no one had ever seen

Come on you thinkers think, and you free writers write
Let those who we automatically think are wrong
have the possibility of being right
And maybe we’ll find they’re a lot like us

Let passion brew and let’s pour it out
And pass it all around

And then we’ll say:
We’ll say that we can pull together
Applying personality, creating poetry
Oh something beautiful
Thank God for the beautiful

Shall we make a list of things to do,
To see and touch, and to talk about
We’ll do them all together, then check them off
And then we’ll do them again

There’s a world to inspire
A world too full of hunger
No we are not getting younger
But we are most certainly alive
Track Name: Abyss
Lyrics:

Jump in with me
Jump in with me, come on
Let’s swim down there
Let’s swim down there to the bottom of the sea

In the depths of the abyss
It is quiet and still
An ancient city of light appears in this world of dark
And out of the black, creatures of wonder and terror encircle us
And their bodies of light float and dance, they dance and soar all around us
And your eyes, they light up
And I’m caught when your eyes light up
When your eyes
I’m caught when your eyes light up the dark

We’re back on top of the world below us
We’re back on top of the world below us
Floating beneath another world above
The great kingdom of lights
We are floating between two worlds
We are floating between two worlds
Floating between two spaces, two worlds, the two of us

Walk with me, come on
Walk with me along the dirt and gravel roads
Let’s climb up there barefoot to the top
And watch out from the top where the stars come and the sun goes down
Track Name: In Arms
Lyrics:

Love in arms is rest and peace
One in arms finds rest and peace

With love in arms we’ll rise
And one in arms can fight
With love in arms we’ll rise
With love in arms
Track Name: Sheol's Wake
Lyrics:

Whispers from demon crooks on a shipwrecked shore
Hauntings and sightings from the black shores
40 days and long nights in her wake we wait…
With sun-scorched and salt-dry lips we wait

For wind

Jack went rowing with the sun held high
Said if hell was coming he’d rather die
In the wake we waited for him to return
But of the water’s unforgiving ways we have learned

So we prayed
For his soul
To the one
Who gave us our souls
And we prayed:
LORD save us
Please send us
Send us home

Save us
Save us
Save us
Oh father save us
Carry us home
Carry us LORD
Carry us home
Carry us on
